DO YOU NEED HELP WITH YARD WORK?
Hello Ascension family!  Are any of you in need of some help with upkeep in your yard?  We're grateful to have members who are willing to pitch in and help those who struggle to get outside for spring cleaning or who are choosing to stay inside to stay safe.  We've had quite a lot of flooding recently as well.  Need help with the clean up and left behind outdoor debris?  Please contact Susie Brekke, Member Connections, at susie@ascensiongb.com  

Let us know how others can lend a hand for you at this time. If you are interested in helping out with this task please also contact Susie for more information.  Thank you!

 

CLOTH FACE MASKS AVAILABLE
We have hand-made face masks available for members that need them.  If you need one, contact Valerie (valerie@ascensiongb.com).  Let her know how many and sizes needed (adult or child).  She will pass your name on and someone will call you with information about where to pick up your mask/s.  If you have masks, fabric or supplies to donate, or if you would like to sew masks, please contact Connie Gloe at gloewormmom@gmail.com.  

Not only are we prepared to make face masks for members for their own use, we are providing face masks to the Food Pantry at Resurrection Lutheran Church.  The need right now is for people who could help sew masks.  If you are interested, please contact Connie Gloe for more details.
